The Transgender Phenomenon

by Richard Ekins & Dave King - £32.99  Sage Publications (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780761971641 | ISBN 10: 0761971645

This groundbreaking study sets out a framework for exploring transgender diversity for the new millennium. It sets forth an original and comprehensive research and provides a wealth of vivid illustrative material.
 
Based on two decades of fieldwork, life history work, qualitative analysis, archival work and contact with several thousand cross-dressers and sex-changers around the world, the authors distinguish a number of contemporary transgendering `stories' to illustrate:

  • the binary male/female divide;
  • the interrelations betwen sex, sexuality and gender;
  • the interrelations between the main sub-processes of transgendering.
Wonderfully insightful, The Transgender Phenomenon develops an original and innovative conceptual framkework for understanding the full range of the transgender experience.
"An outstanding survey of the evolution of trans phenomena, splendidly written, highly informative, scholarly at its best, yet easy to read even for those neither trans nor sociologist. Drs Ekins and King, experts in the field, unroll the panoramas of sex, gender, and transgendering that have evloved during the last decades. For everyone wanting to understand the interaction of women and men and of those who cannot or will not identify with either of these two cataegories, reading this book is a must, and a real pleasure."
(Professor Friedmann Pfaefflin, University of ULM)
